Pultrusion is a continuous manufacturing process for producing lengths of reinforced polymer structural shapes with constant cross-sections. Examples of pultruded items include beams, channels, pipe, panels, tubing, fishing rods, and rebar.
The pultrusion process involves pulling reinforcing fibers that have been wet with a resin binder through a heated steel forming die. This continuous pultrusion operation can be readily automated and allows for low labor involvement. The process is adaptable to both simple and complex cross-sectional shapes. High fiber loadings can yield structural shapes with very good structural properties. View a short video of the pultrusion process. Or this video. Another good overview of pultusion is available at ACMA’s Pultrusion Industry Council’s site.
